Enjoy an infinite variety of natural and believable outcomes in every collision. Players feel more resilient, push and pull during the fight for possession, and recover from light challenges more easily.Revolutionary gameplay innovations make FIFA 12 deeper and more engaging. All-new Precision Dribbling creates a higher fidelity of touch on the ball for better control in tight spaces, more time to make decisions on attack, and more control over the pace of the game. Innovations in attack are balanced by a re-designed defending mechanism, making it as skilful and meaningful as real-world football. With all-new Tactical Defending, positioning and intercepting passes are as important as tackling. Tactics and timing are crucial. Plus, CPU players have been infused with Pro Player Intelligence, a self-awareness that enables them to behave and make decisions based on their own skills and tendencies, and gives them the aptitude to understand the strengths and weaknesses of teammates in every situation. Introducing EA SPORTS Football Club—the heartbeat of FIFA 12—a live service connecting players to the real-world game with fresh, new content all the time, enabling them to support their favourite club and connect and compete with their friends, rivals and millions of other players around the world. Additional features will be revealed in the months ahead. Key Features:
- Player Impact Engine—Two years in development, the new physics engine is built to deliver real-world physicality in every interaction on the pitch. Experience an infinite variety of natural and believable outcomes in every contact. Players feel more resilient on the ball, push and pull during the fight for possession, and recover from light challenges more easily, preserving their natural momentum.
- Pro Player Intelligence—CPU players have been infused with self-awareness and aptitude, enabling them to make decisions based on their own skills as well as the strengths and attributes of their teammates. Players who possess exceptional vision, for example, will see opportunities for through balls that other players won’t. Real Madrid’s Kaká will be more likely—and quicker—to pick out a run from a teammate farther away than a player with poorer vision. Additionally, teams will vary their attack based on the strengths of their players on the pitch, and the weaknesses of opposing players, creating a more authentic experience and greater variety of matches.
- Tactical Defending—Re-designed defending mechanism fundamentally changes the approach to defending by placing equal importance on positioning, intercepting passes and tackling at the right moment. Tactics and timing are crucial.
- Precision Dribbling—Enjoy new ways to take on opponents, more time on the ball to make decisions, and complete control of the pace of the game. Utilize close dribble touches in tight spaces, on the wings, and even while fending off an opponent.
- EA SPORTS Football Club—For the first time ever, everything within FIFA 12, and against friends, is measured in a meaningful way. Every match matters, all season long. Earn experience points and level up to build status. Track friends, challenges and status through the web. Share and compare accomplishments and spread the news on social channels like Facebook. Plus, real-world storylines will drive content. Gamers will relive crucial real-world football events through regular challenges so that FIFA 12 will look, feel and play like the real-world season.
- Support Your Club—A central experience in EA SPORTS Football Club that enables fans to represent their club and compete against rival clubs in everything they do in FIFA 12. Earn club points and lift your club higher in the Support Your Club League Tables or help them avoid relegation. Virtual league tables are reset each week to create new challenges, renewed rivalries, and fresh storylines.
- True Injuries—The Player Impact Engine monitors contact between players in real-time, analyzing the force of the collision and impact on the body to detect real injuries, creating a deeper more challenging Career Mode. Manage new types of injuries and the risk of sending a player onto the pitch who isn’t fully healed.
- New Presentation—Matches now have a real-world broadcast look and feel. Dramatically improved lighting, more authentic crowds, and new default camera make every game feel special.
- Easier Navigation—Redesigned menu system for fast and easy navigation, featuring customizable Main Menu based on arena player, Virtual Pro and favorite club.
- Complete Authenticity—Over 500 officially licensed clubs and more than 15,000 players.

Why can't I take a set-piece without it going straight to the opposition? Throw-ins, goal kicks, free kicks...the opposition is there in a flash to steal the ball most of the time. Doesn't happen in real football, utter nonsense. Set pieces are abysmal. Defending is awful, it's nigh impossible to get the ball from the striker now, except when the CPU is defending! Then they're all around you sticking the boot in. So frustrating!
Shots from outside the box just aren't possible 90% of the time, you'll be closed down or blocked. Which results in the same goals over and over again, striker through 1-on-1 with the keeper-finesse shot-goal. Or you'll score a rebound because the keepers are dreadful. zzzz
Basic things like colour clashes happens all the time online, whether it's the opposition or the ref, happens way too often; not good enough.
I honestly don't get why people rave about the recent FIFA games. They're the same as they've always been, too easy, full of bugs and irritants, sluggish. Even the menus are sluggish and unresponsive. The graphics are like PS2 graphics, the commentary has gotten worse with, er...Alan...er....Smith. Why does he have so many gaps in his speech?!? Arrrgghhh!! Mute!!Read more ›
Whenever I read online reviews of Fifa I often ask myself is this a Pes player reviewing fifa or a genuine review, and vice versa for Pes reviews. Since the Mega Drive and Fifa International Soccer I have been soccer game mad, when Pes revolutionised the genre I went to Pes during Ps1 days and also Ps2. The first offerings on the PS3 of both games left me eventually ditching Pes and picking up Fifa 09. Year later bought Pes and Fifa and Fifa 10 stayed, then Fifa 11 (didnt bother with Pes) which was in my opinion the finest football game I have played on any console.
So imagine my excitement for this years installment, and I went and bought the game on release day having played the demo to death. My first impressions were very good, the graphics were improved and there were many new features such as youth scouts and a much more realistic transfer market. I have never been one for entering Online matches immediately and rather play the career mode to death (or for as many seasons as I could til it crashed as in 11)
***SINCE ORIGINALLY WRITING THIS REVIEW I HAVE CHANGED MY OPINION ON THE GAME HAVING AWARDED IT 7.5/10 FIRST TIME ROUND, AND NO IM NOT SPONSORED BY EA!***
THE PROBLEMS ARE THUS:-
The defending is not impossible but heavily balanced in the favour of the CPU forwards with their (sometimes 62 rated) winger skipping past Van Der Wiel like he wasnt even their, cutting inside Jan Vertonghen and blasting it into the net. This could be acceptable from Messi or Ronaldo but when 62 rated winger youve never heard of does it EVERY ATTACK, it becomes massively, pad smashingly, frustrating.Read more ›
to try to understand how to take penalties.But this has eluded me to long.Every other aspect of the game is first class.
So annoying I tried refund this item but was too late
I received FIFA 12 yesterday, and so must stress that glitches/bugs are not part of the agenda, and that my opinion could change.
First of all, the new style of defending. I don't care what people say about its difficulty, or the simplicity of the past system (now legacy), it's a system with a learning curve. People, you see, are meant to improve at it over time, unlike the unrealistic constant button holding that previous generations have lumbered us with. To defend, one actually has to TIME the tackle, and get into POSITION... forgive me, but isn't that kind of like... football? In accordance with some previous reviews, I do believe EA have given some of the defenders far too much skill, and the decision making is basically, for defenders, a Barcelona system (I am referring to the AI on the harder difficulties), in that clearing the ball is seldom seen now. A few points to improve upon, but at least we don't have another game in which the only skills to hone are attacking ones.
The new player interaction, for now, seems more realistic that any previous FIFA, and the fact that players can now ride challenges despite contact being made seems an excellent addition. Overall, the graphics, and physics/mechanics of the gameplay appear to have improved vastly.
This review focuses entirely on the gameplay (i.e within the match) itself since I think that is mostly what we buy the game for. That said, the dribbling in attack has changed. The old pace control works less, and they have now introduced the ability to dribble in small spaces.Read more ›
